When making up a new section of brake pipe, the need to accurately mirror the original pipe’s curves and bends can be tricky. Laser Tools has a solution with its brake pipe bender and clamp set (part number 8523).
Included in the set are a pair of brake pipe bender tools for shaping both copper and cupro-nickel brake pipes in situ on the vehicle, or on the bench. They are designed to be used with a standard 6mm hex key or a 1/4″D ratchet (not included).
Brake pipe bender is an essential tool
Two pairs of brake pipe clamps are also included, to enable the new pipe to be held securely next to the existing pipe, so that the new pipe can be shaped to replicate the one that it is replacing.
With the existing and new pipes clamped together, the bender tool is steadily turned, the tool’s radius ensuring a smooth curve without any kinking or flattening of the new pipe. This can allow a technician to fabricate an accurate new pipe in minutes.
The set is an essential addition to the toolbox and ideal for the workshop or mobile mechanic, and available now from your Laser Tools stockist. More details can be found on www.lasertools.co.uk.
